About Us

We are a small church made up of people with very broad and diverse understandings of what it means to be a Christian in the 21st Century.  We are on a journey through life and we believe that an important part of that journey is working out our faith under the guidance of God's Spirit and in light of our own experience, so that we can live out the unconditional love that Jesus showed to all people. 


A few words from our Minister













Hello I am Shannon, the minister here at Ben Rhydding Methodist church.


If you are visiting our website, I hope you find the information that you are looking for.  If not feel free to contact me or pop in to church and visit us.

Here at Ben Rhydding you will meet a group of welcoming, open folk whose approach to the Christian tradition is one which affirms the variety and depth of our human experience and the richness of each person’s search for meaning.  Consequently we invite all people to participate in our community and worship life without insisting that they become like us.  As individuals we follow our own spiritual path and at Ben Rhydding we understand that these paths enable us to find relevance and meaning as we journey together.

If you are interested in exploring your faith and spiritual life with a broad thinking community you have found the right place, it is an exciting time to be in the church! As new insights and new connections emerge there are many conversations, debates and challenges to explore together. We would be delighted if you wanted to come and join us as we seek to discover what it means to be people of faith and the Christian church in the 21st century.
